The Danish city Frederikshavn has an old center full of colorful fishing houses called Fiskerklyngen. There are also beaches in the surroundings (including Denmark's only palm beach) and Frederikshavn has one of the country's largest pedestrian areas where you can do extensive shopping.
The town has approximately 25,000 inhabitants.
Frederikshavn is located in the north of Denmark's east coast, on the Kattegat, the strait that divides the Danish mainland from Sweden. The landscape directly north and south of town is flat, but driving west you'll cross the hills of Jutland.
The town has an important ferry port, with connections to Norway and Sweden. Fishing and processing of the fish also form important sources of income. In Denmark 'frederikshavner' denotes a particular quality plaice. The Danish marine also has a base here. The beaches draw many tourists every year. Frederikshavn profiles itself as eco city; in 2015 the entire city is to rely exclusively on renewable energy. This way the city wants to demonstrate the possibilities of (Danish) energy technology.
Frederikshavn has excellent public city bus transport. There are also connections from the bus station in front of the train station to for example Skagen, Sæby, Øster Vrå, Sindal and Hirtshals.
Frederikshavn isn't a busy city and you'll have no trouble finding your way around in a rental car. There are also sufficient parking facilities. The recharger stations at the municipal parking lots where you can recharge the batteries of electronic cars are a curiosity in Frederikshavn. It's not compulsory to drive a car that runs on renewable energy (see Economy) in Frederikshavn, as it's hard to come by in the rest of Denmark.
Frederikshavn offers a reasonable choice of accommodations, mainly in the budget and midrange category. Most hotels are along the beaches. There are also campsites in Frederikshavn's vicinity.
